We all know that yesterday there was an eclipse which North America was the prime viewing area to see this amazing event. 

Yet, there was talk on twitter over those who choose to look up at the sun when knowing that it can cause blindness. This isn’t a joking manner and then seeing how people who were tweeting about collecting social security due to blindness by the eclipse. 

That’s not something to joke about. This is something that makes it challenging for those who are actually have disabilities gaining assistance if they need it. When those can go out of there way to post things of this nature. It tends to make me feel like they think it’s just easy for those have disabilities to just get by. 

Even if they were joking it isn’t a laughing matter when there are people who depending on those resources that are out there to help them live and live an independently. 

Looking up into the sun for no reason won’t get those the outcome they would be expecting if they chose to look without wearing the proper glasses to view the eclipse. 

New Law for Captain Orange

California is ready with a new law that urges Captain Orange to get himself check out. Good on California lawmakers for stepping up purposing a bill that will only help the American people to see if there is something wrong with Captain Orange. 

This does sound like Captain Orange will be headed into seeing a doctor to check out. 

He might not be pleased but those opposed Captain Orange will love this news that’s for sure. 

Some may not like this turn of events. I guess now it’s up to Captain Orange to go on twitter and do a rant or better yet more states end up putting new laws in effect that would clearly put a damper on Captain Orange. 

We all know about Brexit…. Disability Rights might be on the line in the United Kingdom since the EU has been a strong influence when it relates to safeguarding rights for people with disabilities. The EU has played a key role in legislation that was put into place in the United Kingdom.

The legislations that were put in place with the influence of the European Union which helped to put these safeguards into place to protect people with disabilities within England.

These safe guards are put into place for a reason and if those who play key roles in government are wanting to pull laws and acts that are meant to help people will cause outrage in which it is needed especially when everyone deserves to have the ability to live their life the best they can.

This is where advocates need to step up fight to protect those who depend on these laws so they can be treated with respect and protecting them from being taken advantage of.

Tune in tonight we discuss this further… Tune in at http://tobtr.com/s/10167523.

Growing up I was faced with struggles when it related back to traveling with my disability which made things challenging not only for me growing up but for my family as well. 
The first challenge I faced was getting as familiar with an area that I wasn’t familiar with in the first place and being a child I heavily relied on maps to get an understanding of how my family was traveling to each destination. 

The second challenge was that I liked to be always on time especially depending on how far away the destination was. 

The third challenge was I had to ask questions about the area in which we were traveling to and as a child it was very repetitive for my parents. 

The fourth challenge was being able to do something while on long car rides or flying. Flying wasn’t an enjoyable experience for me growing up since it was the fear of the unknown. 

The fifth challenge had to be knowing what we would be doing when we arrive at the destination. 

Looking back these challenges I’ve experienced I’ve adapted to each vacation my family took as well and figuring out how much I was able to adapt to each travel experience. 

We recently discussed on The Satirically Challenged Show about how there is an app to help families that have kids on Autism Spectrum Disorder that would help to improve their travel experience and help find areas that their children can feel relaxed at and also find different places that aren’t overstimulating for their children.

*Disclaimer to all of our viewers this is post is about my own experiences I’ve had while traveling as a child. Each person is different when it relates to traveling and everyone has there own experiences.*

Have you ever seen yourself being represented in tv or film? I know as a person with Autism I can say that I haven’t seen myself being represented in a film or television since people with Autism are cast as able body people since Autism is an invisible disability and the only series that will have an actor with Autism is a Netflix series which is set to debut this month sometime.

My biggest concern is for those who are under represented in television and film is it fair to portray something that may not be accurate or hire someone who doesn’t have a disability to protay a role that is accurate in it of itself with giving someone a role who actually has the disability to give an accurate point of view and not just allowing a big name to have the role instead.

When casting directors do this it really hinders those from actually seeing themselves accurately portrayed in film and television.

If this continues it will only continue to limit those who want to be in the industry from getting roles that they can provide in film and television.

Mark your calendars for next year’s ReelAbilities Disabilities Film Festival which is being held March 8-14th of 2018.

This will be our third year being sponsors of ReelAbilities which we are looking forward to continuing to support this amazing film festival.

We’ve had some great experiences while being there not only as sponsors but also as press.

We managed to see amazing films that spark so much conversation and really shows how we all can relate back to film festivals that are shown there no matter what your abilities are.
